The weather outside may have been frightful, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of 45 Conrad High School seniors who walked across the gym floor one last time to be handed a graduation diploma.
It was the one hundred-first annual commencement exercise for the high school.
Two-by-two the seniors filed in as the CHS band, under the direction of Todd Truscott, played the traditional processional. The National Anthem was sung by members of the Skyliner singing group.
Senior class advisor, Sam Vidal, gave a short welcoming address in which he said he was honored to have worked with this class.
Class President Nikki Linn then introduced the class speakers, Amanda Lee, Megan Coffelt, and Sierra Richardson.
The Junior-Senior Choir presented a rendition of I Will Remember You with Carol Johns playing the piano.
